Firkin pour. Muddy and cloudy brown. Little head but lively and surprisingly active carbonation for a gravity keg. Oak is intense in the nose and even more intense on the tongue. Seems they didnít consider that too much oak could be a bad thing with this beer... but itís basically all oak. Tannic, dry, parched, sour, etc. Little of the original old ale (which is a shadow of its former self) was left. Not a terrible beer but they really do need to keep the oak in check.

cask at the brewery. murky reddish orange, and boy was the head something to behold here. nice plummy port, & oakey nose. some hints of oranges and something i canít label. the aroma was fantastic. flavor, yeah, itís oaked. compared side by side with the non oaked version this struck me as more rounded out, didnít have the bite to it. the alcohol was more restrained. strawberry and blum mixed with the slight vanilla and toasted wood taste. the sweetness is really complimented by the oak, which is all over this. touch of toast and chocolate round this out. finish was oakey lime and vanilla with lush dark fruits.
